17 <h3><a name="TODO">TODO - JSCoverage 0.4</a></h3>
18 <p>
19 JSCoverage 0.4 is available for <a href="http://siliconforks.com/jscoverage/download.html">download</a>.
20 </p>
21 <p>
22 This release includes many new features:
23 </p>
24 <ul class="list">
25 <li>
26 The new <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is provided as an
27 alternative to the <code>jscoverage</code> program. The
28 <code>jscoverage-server</code> program is a simple HTTP server which
29 instruments JavaScript code as it is served; this allows you to execute
30 JavaScript and gather code coverage statistics without a preliminary
31 step of creating instrumented code. The <code>jscoverage-server</code>
32 program can either serve files directly from the filesystem or run as a
33 proxy server (with the <code>--proxy</code> option), instrumenting
34 JavaScript provided by another web server.
35 <li>
36 Using <code>jscoverage-server</code>, coverage reports can now be stored
37 to the filesystem.
38 </li>
39 <li>
40 JSCoverage now recognizes special JavaScript comments which specify that
41 certain lines of code should be ignored in coverage reports.
42 </li>
43 <li>
44 The new <code>--encoding</code> option provides better support for
45 different character encodings.
46 </li>
47 <li>
48 The JSCoverage user interface is now faster and more responsive.
49 </li>
50 <li>
51 The new <code>--no-highlight</code> option can be used to disable syntax
52 highlighting (giving better performance for large JavaScript files).
53 </li>
54 <li>
55 The build system has been modified so that <code>make install</code>
56 only installs the <code>jscoverage</code> and
57 <code>jscoverage-server</code> executables and their manual pages.
58 (Previous versions installed SpiderMonkey library and executable files,
59 which could conflict with other versions of SpiderMonkey installed on
60 your system.)
61 </li>
62 <li>
63 JSCoverage now supports several features beyond those found in the
64 <cite>ECMAScript Language Specification</cite>, including the following:
65 <ul class="list">
66 <li>getters and setters
67 <li><code>for each</code> loops
68 <li>generators and iterators
69 <li>the <code>let</code> keyword
70 <li>destructuring assignment
71 <li>array comprehensions
72 <li>expression closures
73 <li>generator expressions
74 </ul>
75 Use the new <code>--js-version</code> option to enable these features.
76 </li>
77 </ul>
78 <p>
79 The GCC C++ compiler (<code>g++</code>) is now required to compile
80 JSCoverage. (Previously, only the C compiler was needed.)
